With shared expertise in designing, permitting, building and optimizing solar photovoltaic (PV) systems for agricultural operations, SunLink Corporation (San Rafael, California) and CalCom Solar (Visalia, CA) have completed three solar projects in Shafter and Wasco, California – the first in a larger Central Valley portfolio of PV installations.

To streamline all project construction, SunLink standardized its mounting solution design and permit set to align with CalCom’s installation preferences.

SunLink PowerCare geotechnical testing was also performed on sites in Madera and Tipton, CA, to optimize designs and inform the installation teams in order to further accelerate these projects’ timelines.

CalCom was then able to customize and complete the installation per that customer’s needs, such as uneven terrain and boundary constraints.

“When it comes to the geotechnical, engineering and installation expertise essential for agricultural solar projects, our suite of products+services+software solutions answers the needs of farmers and growers for lower project costs, reduced risk and easy long-term operation. We understand the project priorities and drivers of this market,” said SunLink CEO Michael Maulick.

“Working closely with the other agricultural experts at CalCom, we are able to streamline the entire project lifecycle and deliver more successful energy assets.”
